DIY Test Bed
I had a couple of old computer cases lying about and I thought it might be good idea to build a test bench, seeing as I do quite a bit of computer repair and diagnostics.
I used an old Mid-Tower because I don’t really get allot of motherboards to work on that are more than just a regular Micro-ATX or ATX
- 60*60 Sheet metal
- Angle Aluminium
- 1 Old computer case
- Self-etching primer
- Various spray paints
These are some optional extra’s I think that would make the overall aesthetic look even better.
- Delrin Vandal Resistant Illuminated Switch Black - 22mm Green Ring

Test Bench Build Log Day 1
I completely dis-assembled the case, drilling out all the rivets and such just to leave the back panel and the motherboard tray. I forgot to take any pictures of before I removed the motherboard tray but anyways.
Next I traced the Power supply cut-out hole because; I couldn't find a decent template online.
Materials I will be using at some point.
Cutting with a jigsaw because I quickly got bored of the hacksaw. I STRONGLY recommend using a proper metal blade, I used a wood blade a first and it didn’t go so well.
Self-etching primer for all of the spray-paint goodness.
And then actually priming it…
More later, I can’t say it will be tomorrow but it will be soon. Hopefully J
